On November 18, 1967, one of Kentucky’s most scenic and treasured wilderness areas was poised to become Red River Lake. The pivotal visit by U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas placed the local controversy into the national spotlight. Covered by CBS News, TIME Magazine and others, the battle endured for years between environmental factions, dam proponents, as well as state and federal officials ... with Powell County flood control in the balance. Today, this chapter of Red River Gorge and Kentucky’s natural history is largely forgotten, but is retold by the voices that made it happen.
Produced by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife, Charlie Baglan. The program features: Oscar Geralds and Carroll Tichenor -Sierra Club, Governor Julian Carroll, Dr. Bill Martin - Eastern Kentucky University, Judge Sara Combs - widow of Governor Bert T. Combs, Cory Graham - Powell County Flood Plane Coordinator, climbers, backpackers, visitors to The Red at Miguel's Pizza, and Tim Eling - Daniel Boone National Forest.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
